    Question cant install wireless device rt2870

    hey. i have been tring to install my Belkin F5D8053 usb wireless N device. i read up that i had to use the rt2870 driver for the device. i installed the driver package and when i try to do "sudo modprobe rt2870sta" it says FATAL: error inserting rt2870sta (/lib..../rt2870sta.ko) invalid module format.

    i have no internet acces to that computer so i have to download it from another. can you help me fix it to connect to my wireless network. im a noob at linux..


    thanks

    I didn't have much luck getting my Belkin usb adapters to work, so take this for what its worth.

    Did you try running this with ndiswrapper? If so, what does ndiswrapper -l give you?
